Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Katie is on the verge of her Rumspringa, the time in Amish life when teenagers are free to experience non-Amish culture before officially joining the church. But before Rumspringa arrives, Katie's safe world starts to crumble. It begins with a fiery helicopter crash in the cornfields, followed by rumors of massive unrest and the disappearance of huge numbers of people all over the world. Something is out there...and it is making a killing.

Unsure why they haven't yet been attacked, the Amish Elders make a decree: no one goes outside their community, and no one is allowed in. But when Katie finds a gravely injured young man lying just outside the boundary of their land, she can't leave him to die. She refuses to submit to the Elders' rule and secretly brings the stranger into her community — but what else is she bringing in with him?

Review:

"This is a book to make you fear the shadows — a horrifying and gruesome tale of faith, and things that blink red eyes in the night. I began reading in the daylight, and read on into the late hours, leaning close, biting my lip. I could not look away; I was obsessed. Katie is an unbreakable soul." Lauren DeStefano, New York Times Bestselling author of the Chemical Garden Trilogy

Review:

"What an eerily believable, unique story! I can't stop thinking about it — or shivering." Melissa Marr, New York Times bestselling author of the Wicked Lovely Books

Review:

"Readers will find it hard to put down this suspenseful, scary, compulsively readable adventure." Kirkus

Synopsis:

In this captivating thriller, Amish teen Katie secretly lets an injured stranger into her isolated community — but has she also let in the plague that is destroying the outside world?
